ÉIGSE CHOLM CILLE 2008

 

Cuireadh Éigse Cholm Cille ar bun sa bhliain 2002 le léamh agus scríobh na Gaeilge a chur chun cinn agus le ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar scríbhneoirí cheantar an Chineál Eoghain.

Bíonn téama faoi leith ag an Éigse achan bhliain agus i mbliana is é "Amhránaíocht Iarthar Uladh" atá i gceist. Beidh an Éigse ag díriú isteach ar ghnéithe éagsúla den traidisiún amhránaíochta in Inis Eoghain, i dTír Eoghain agus i nDoire.

Is é Peadar Mac Gabhann atá mar stiúrthóir ar Éigse Cholm Cille 2008 agus labhair sé le Lynette faoin traidisiún amhránaíochta agus faoi cé chomh tábhachtach is atá an ghné logánta de.

Éigse Cholm Cille is based in Derry and was set up in 2002 to promote reading and writing in Irish and to celebrate writers from the area known as Cineál Eoghain which includes Inishowen and the Sperrins.

Each year the Éigse has a specific theme and this year it's "Irish Language Singing and Song in West Ulster". A variety of lectures will cover all aspects of the song tradition in the area of Inishowen, Derry and Tyrone.

Peadar Mac Gabhann is the director of this year's Éigse and he spoke to Lynette about the songs and about the importance of the local aspect.
